Blackhawks forward Shaw fined $2,000 for taking dive

NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has fined Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw $2,000 for taking a dive during a game last month against the Los Angeles Kings.

The fine was announced Friday.

Shaw drew a delayed penalty to Kings forward Mike Richards early in the March 30 game, and the Blackhawks scored seven seconds later. Earlier this season, Shaw received a warning for the violation the league calls diving/embellishment.

The rule was revised for this season and is designed to more seriously penalize players and teams if they repeatedly attempt to draw penalties.
